Persepolis begins with an introduction to the Iranian Revolution, and the fall of the Shah. Satrapi shows us the burning of the Rex Cinema, an example of the Shah’s oppression (10/11). This is effectively showcased with a splash panel, which depicts the ghosts of those who died in the fire (15/2). This imagery is powerful - the deaths and pains of those inside are unimaginable; despite the difficulty in portraying this, Satrapi is able to communicate this through the illustrated facial expressions of the ghosts, along with the ghosts running towards the exits of the cinema. The text by itself is less effective, as it simply describes what happens with little emotion, but the imagery complements the text in order to convey the emotion and pain.
A character having an ability to be an influence of fatality is a dangerously powerful trait to have. The victim’s life is placed into the hands of the influencer.

Bruno Bettelheim once said, “Punishment may make us obey the orders we are given, but at best it will only teach an obedience to authority, not a self-control which enhances our self-respect.” More often than not, those surrounded by rules feel pressured to adhere to them due to the fear of repercussions. Even so, it is not guaranteed people will comply. Sometimes, being bound by rules can only make one feel rebellious.
We learn about Djarf’s character as: evil, cocky, attention-seeker and dominant when we read through these details highlighted by the author. However, the important detail is the last two sentences in that paragraph which highlights that Harold(the protagonist) was becoming personally detached to his previous lifestyle due Djarf’s actions. In order to ensure the readers understand this message, Wells Tower intentionally put in at the last sentence of the paragraph because physiologically readers tend to pay more attention on the details placed at the beginning and ending of any paragraph. Upon close observation, it is interesting that Wells Tower brings out this character development in the protagonist through secondary characters through a combination of Ernest Hemingway’s and Jamaica Kincaid’s style. Wells Tower first provides us four long paragraphs filled with information about the evil actions of Djarf which creates a similar rant like effect from Girl by Kincaid.
